Sunflowers and Mixed Media Fun on Yupo Paper by Martha Kisling

Mixed Media on Yupo 11x17
Sunflower Fun was one of my demo paintings for my Watercolor on Yupo Workshop last month. I used oil pastels on the slick yupo paper for line work that would resist the watercolor and then painted in bright, bold colors for the sunflower, leaves and background.
I used plastic wrap on the wet paint to create the fun texture in the background. When everything was dry I came in with darks to pull out and define the sunflowers.
You can see all the fun colors and texture created in this detail - painting on yupo paper keeps the colors bright and bold and provides a wealth of creative fun!
